Janome Memory Craft 6500P Quilting Sewing Machine

by fitzcharming

I've been a quilter for many years, always sticking to the tried and true hand quilting methods that I knew best. Until recently that is. Now I'm a machine quilting convert.

Made by Janome, formerly the New Home Sewing Machine Company, the Janome Memory Craft 6500P Sewing Machine is a very popular choice among experienced quilters. The computerized engineering allows you to finish up quilts and other sewing projects quickly and easily, with a top sewing speed of 1000 straight stitches per minute. It's priced at the high end of the portable home sewing machine range but will the amazing array of features most people agree it's worth the money.

This Janome Memory Craft Sewing Machine Has Lots Of Quilting Extras - 135 Different Types Of Sewing Stitches

With 135 Different Stitches Its One Of The Most Versatile Sewing Machines On The Market

Janome SewingStitchesThere are 135 stitches that can be used over 4 different modes which gives you 391 available stitches including the buttonholes. You can use these stitches for quilting, sewing garments, monograms, and embroidery. The quilting mode alone has 69 different stitches, with 4 that look like hand quilting. Monogramming comes in block and script letters, both capital and lower case, along with numbers. There is a quick flip chart reference that folds down on the back of the machine to serve as a stitch choice guide. And the Janome MC6500P has memory recall of the last 3 stitches you've used if you need to rework a seam.

The Memory Craft sewing machine has an automatic threader, independent bobbin winder, and thread cutter that can be set to automatically cut after a particular stitch sequence. And there is a visible pressure gauge on the front that lets you see the exact amount of pressure you are using on a project so you can come back to it at a later time. This keeps the stitches uniform even if you sew other items in between.

The Janome MC6500P has die cast aluminum arm, bed, top cover and face plate. The internal gears are all metal it comes with a 25 year limited mechanical warranty. Metal gears allow top speed sewing without vibration and they last longer than plastic parts. The disadvantage of metal gears is the noise and weight. This sewing machine is built like a tank and made to last.
